After its inception in 1997, Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival has grown into the largest electronic music event in the Western Hermisphere. From one-stage show, to the Las Vegas motor speedway Pasquale Rotella’s vision has grown much larger than anyone could have ever imagined.
Today, Insomniac have revealed the highly anticipated 20th anniversary dates of the Electric Daisy Carnival. To celebrate two decades of EDC, the festival is returning to its home in the City of Sin on June 17, 18, and 19th.
Tickets for this year’s event will go on sale Monday, September 21st. Watch the full video below and start looking at flights, as this is one even you can’t afford to miss.
I’m still buzzing off the energy that all you beautiful Headliners created under the starry skies at Nocturnal, and I’m excited to announce some news about another special celebration.
Tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2016—our 20th Anniversary—will go on sale Monday, September 21st at 12pm PT. In the past, ticket sales have started at various time periods. This year would be one of the earliest. Why, you ask?
One of the reasons is that this summer, Nevada lawmakers signed a bill that amended the city’s Live Entertainment Tax, which has been in place since 2004 but never applied to EDC. Now it does, and it’s going to affect not just us but friends like Burning Man, too.
What the change creates is basically a 9% tax on the price of admission for all tickets sold starting on October 1st, which is why we’re giving you the opportunity to buy tickets before that date.
I know how much you guys sacrifice and save to make it out to EDC every year, and it’s important for me to give you as many options as possible this year. I want you all with us as we celebrate 20 Years Under the Electric Sky! – Pasquale Rotella
